mountall - Mount filesystems during boot


mountall [OPTIONS]...


mountall is an Upstart init(8) helper that mounts filesystems.

It reads fstab(5) and supplements the entries found with a set of built-in entries (generally found in /lib/init/fstab) and calls fsck(8), mount(8) and swapon(8) in the correct order to mount filesystems once the underlying devices have been created by udevd(8).


Detach and run in the background.
Force check of all filesystems.
Attempt to fix all fsck errors.
Do not emit events after mounting filesystems.
--dev-wait-time=value (in seconds)
In case of bootwait or timeout: specify the time to wait for device to be detected. The default is 30 seconds. Legal values are between 1 and 2147483647 seconds.
-q, --quiet
Reduce output to errors only.
-v, --verbose
Increase output to include informational messages.
Display this help and exit.
Output version information and exit.
